So I have made more progress on my interior design, i.e. Home Fashion. I now have all of the lighting up, curtains hung, and some decor on the wall above the sofa. Up until now everything was just stuff I slapped up there that I had from our previous home. Granted we are only working on our main room, and dining room right now, but next we move onto my daughter's room for a new paint color, and new curtains.
I have to say the biggest challenge has been the curtains. They are not cheap if you want decent ones that will last a long time. Also since we have so many windows, choosing a color that works with your design aesthetic is also a challenge when you are not sure what your design aesthetic is!
Honestly, this is no where near where I wanted to go with things, in fact I wanted a deep turquoise or teal but finding curtains in that color scheme proved difficult and in fact the only curtains I could find in that scheme that were not "grommet hang style", which I do not care for personally, were extremely expensive, I'm talking over 100.00 per panel.
So I found these lovelies at JC Penny online. They are pure silk, padded, and lined. They really do a wonderful job of keeping the cold out this winter as well. I have noticed a big difference since we hung then in the heating of our home. These curtains were originally 200.00 per panel but we got them on clearance for 60.00 each and on top of that I was able to get an extra 20% off.
Okay so that is it today for my home fashion but for me, Happiness Is ... getting my home fashion together!
